What is your name and location?

Angela Walker, Sheffield, UK

What type of cycling do you enjoy?

All kinds, I ride for transportation, exercise and fun. I sold my car 2 years ago and haven’t looked back!

What is your first cycling memory?

As a child, being taught to ride by the boys next door.

Who inspires you to ride? Better yet, why?

The old guys at my cycling club, many of whom are in their 70’s and still racking up the miles every Sunday. Cycling keeps them young, both in mind and body.

What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year?

340 miles in 4 days through all 7 of Scotland’s cities for charity. 25 riders – great scenery and great company.
